Subject: LIKE GOING BACK IN TIME
While some of the people did not feel that this film was of any particular value, I have to disagree with them. In my humble opinion, it is always nice to be able to look back in time at an area's beginnings and its settlers. This film is now already over a half century old and it is full of memorabilia for those of us old enough to have frequented the places shown in the film and have known some of the people in the film as well. And as I am a former Marine, I was particularly happy to hear the Marine Corps hymn played as background music. SemperFi
A 1954 formula film made for the local theatres showing its town. Nothing special or picturesque about the towns. Film editing is choppy. "Our Town is strictly made to be seen by the town's movie patrons.
Subject: Are the people this dull too?
These 2 films, one for Doylestown Pa, the other, Levittown basically use the same voice overs, but with different images, to tell of that same thing. Myhometown is great! There isn't that much narration, and the shots of shopkeep after shopkeeper juts makes these 2 films dull as a doornail.
